Growing up as a kid, I only had a very vague idea of Medusa which was deeply influenced by pop culture. I saw a poetry interpretation last year that totally blew my mind. I heard the real story of Medusa, where a young woman cut pieces about Medusa in with poetry about rape victims. It was horrifying but she did it beautifully. I couldn’t get it out of my head. Actually, it’s still not out of my head, so perhaps I should do more.
Blaming the victim is never okay.
